Selecting Wheels for Your Ride

Jan 23, 2008
Customizing your vehicle is something that you will be tempted to do especially if you have a stock vehicle. You may want to make your vehicle different from the rest. If you are unsatisfied with the look of your vehicle then you are going to modify it bit by bit and make it look cool. One of the things that will certainly change the look of your car is your set of wheels. There are a lot of wheels to choose from out there. There are brands like Momo, Zigen, and many more. The designs can vary from three spoke to four spoke and so on. You can have silver rims, white rims, or even gold rims. Whatever suits your car the best will certainly be your choice. You can even purchase several sets of wheels so that you could change wheels from time to time if you feel like it.

There are some things that you have to keep in mind when putting on the wheels for your car. One of the important considerations that you have to understand is the size of the wheel. Can the new wheel fit into your car? Wheels and rims can come in seventeen and even up to twenty inches in diameter! You should be able to calculate the correct size of your rim or else you will not be able to make your car run properly. The wheels should be able to fit perfectly into your car. If the wheel does not fit in perfectly then you will certainly have many problems. You will damage your chassis. You will destroy your tires. Worst of all, you may even crash your car and hurt yourself. Wheels are very important for obvious reasons. Do not mess with them if you do not know what you are doing.

Another important thing that you have to understand about wheels is the performance effect. Normally, larger wheels diminish the performance of the vehicle. At just the right size, a vehicle can function optimally but as you increase the size of the wheel for aesthetics, you will diminish the car's performance bit by bit.

Aside from the design of the rims, you'll have to understand the kind of tires to pair with them. There are a lot of tires out there. You can have the Good Year or Dunlop tires, to name a few brands. There are many more brands out there to choose from. Generally, the tires that are sold out there are for general purpose. They can function properly in the rain or on dry concrete. If you would like to get specialized tires then you may have to go to a specialty car shop. There will be dry tires, race tires, wet tires, and all sorts of special tires there to suit your needs. If you would like to make sure that you tires fit into the rims then you could try them out on your car itself. Do this just to be sure because you will certainly get a headache if you buy tires that will not fit your rims.
